Grilled Spinach and Feta Burgers

I made it through Monday!  Is it strange that I feel like that every Monday night?  It’s always such a long day.  It looks something like this:

  • 8:30AM : Arrive at work
  • 6:00PM: Leave work
  • 6:30 – 7:30 : Gym time 
  • 7:30 – 8:30 : Grocery shop
  • 8:30 – 9:15: Cook dinner
  • 9:15: Eat dinner
  • 9:45: Shower
  • 10:00 : Plop in my bed and turn on the computer

Yeah, that type of day pretty much wipes me out.  But it feels good to get a sweat in, have a nice healthy dinner, and make yummy lunches for the rest of the week!  Eating healthy is all about preparation so my Mondays are key to that.

Workout

Tonight for my workout I chose the Crossfit WOD called “Helen.”  It wasn’t crazy intense but a good workout to ease back into the week.

Helen

Three Rounds for Time ( I ended up finishing just over 13 minutes)

  • 400 meter run (The first two I ran at 7mph and the third at 8mph)
  • 21 kettle bell swings
  • 12 pull ups

Dinner

I’ve really been loving making different types of burgers for my Monday dinner / weekday lunches.  They’re simple, especially on the grill, filling, and great as left overs for lunches.

Grilled Spinach and Feta Burgers

  • 1.5 lbs grass-fed ground sirloin (this will make 5 burgers)
  • 1 cage free large egg
  • A handful of fresh organic spinach (chopped up)
  • Feta Cheese
  • Sea Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.  I didn’t really measure the ingredients, just eyed it.  Form the beef into 5 different patties.  Place over medium heat on the grill for 5-7 minutes on one side.  Flip the burgers and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

I paired my burger with some quinoa and roasted veggies.  What a delicious meal!
